'Can we build an AI brain and when will it take over from humans?’

Faculty of Computer Science

Room 007, Prospect Building

Sir Tom Cowie Campus,

Professor Chris Bowerman, Faculty of Computer Science.

Professor Chris Bowerman is a Professor of Data Science (Artificial Intelligence) in the Faculty of Computer Science.

His research is centred around the areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning in Data Science.

In this lecture, Professor Chris Bowerman will look at how a major paradigm shift in the computing landscape is under way.

Computers are learning!

They are becoming thinking machines. Such cognitive computers will aid humans in formulating solutions and decision making. 

Advances are already having an impact in our lives such as Amazon Echo, making fraud predictions, personalised medicine and IBM Watson health.

But when and what will happen if our 60 year old  AI brain-child turns on us?

The event is free, however, places must be booked.

Registration and refreshments will take place at 5.30pm and the lecture will run from 6 - 7pm.

All welcome!
